School term dates

School term dates 

In 2022, Her Majesty the Queen will be the first British Monarch to have reached the milestone of 70 years on the throne. To mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, celebrations are to be held across the UK throughout the year, however they will focus on Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 June 2022.

Changes have been made to the school term dates (PDF, 160kb) to accommodate these celebrations.
